FRIDAY evening, underground sensors at DOE's Waste Isolation Pilot Plant detected elevated Airborne radiation levels. Obviously taking 48 hours to warn the public is unacceptable. Based on JetStream patterns we believe he source of this detection MAY be Fukushima; as such we expect a report out of the DOE blaming Radon as the source. The Fukushima event in question would have occurred around 2/8/14
Hot Fukushima corium is steaming naturally radioactive Radon laden ground water on an industrial scale. It is ground water that has been in direct contact with the melted radioactive core, as such the steam also contains manmade radioactive materials.
Of course the obvious question is how would airborne Fukushima fallout make it into an underground cavern? The answer is that the DOE caverns are ventilated with fresh air. That ventilation was isolated when the alarm system went off.
One would hope that IF the source radiation was from the plant itself that situation would have been confirmed already and appropriate actions taken. It's possible that DOE is confused by the readings of Radon, Fukushima Fallout products, and possibly even short half life nuclear spallation products resulting from the interaction of Fukushima fallout and Solar flares.
In any of the above scenarios the situation is Max Alert worthy, STAY OUT OF THE RAIN. (freezing rain and rain is forecast for Saint Louis 2/17/14)
